We were looking for a budget hotel with good shuttle service to the Mayo. We got it. It's not the most fancy, but the price was right. It was clean and quiet with free parking. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially the shuttle driver. The pool was great. The shuttle is dedicated to this hotel so you get very... More

We have stayed here for year and it has gone down fast. Don't accept a room in the annex. Musty smell. They moved us when it rained because water came in and carpet got wet. To 10 min. for hot water. Cleaning staff seemed unhappy responded with a groan when greeted. Room was never cleaned. The shuttle drivers were excellant,... More

I came here last weekend in March to spend my birthday weekend with a bunch of friends. I'd have to say, my stay was just fine. I'm an easy going person. It would have been nice would have been to have all 3 of my rooms together, but due to such a big tournament going on I was fine with... More

My wife and I had been driving close to 6 hrs, with about 75 miles to go, on a trip that normally takes about 5.5 hrs. There was heavy snow and wind the day before, roads were pretty bad. From La Crosse to Rochester was white knuckle driving, and 52 north was supposed to be worse. So, we decided it... More

We came to Rochester to go to Mayo Clinic. We called and they promptly sent a shuttle to pick us up at the airport. The shuttle drivers were very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were nice. The free breakfast was decent and included scrambled eggs, hash browns, cereal, fruit, yogurt, donuts, muffins, and... More

Since my last review, we have stayed here again and were pleased to see that more improvements have been made to the rooms (even the smoking rooms). We had new carpet in the room. It seems to be a work in progress however even outside the parking lot had been repaired. Had a new heater/air conditioner unit. So am optimistic... More

My wife and I brought our kids to this hotel to let them be able to swim and just something different for the New Year Eve celebration. Our kids thought the pool was ok, they liked the sauna, but the hot tub was terrible. There were 6 little kids in it when we wanted to go in and when we... More

The tub was full of spackle. They updated the sink but forgot about the rest of the room. Dogs running loose in community area. Windows need updating (weatherwise). Possible mold in bathroom. Personnel were none too friendly.

We had a 10 day stay in a suite (at a terrific Mayo rate) that consisted of a bedroom with 2 double beds and a separate room with table, chairs, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and sink. The arrangement was terrific so that sleep and other activities could be divided between the rooms (both had TV's ). We found it quiet... More
